The Two Magnesias in the First Mithridatic War
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
There has long been debate about the fate of Magnesia on the Maeander and Magnesia near Sipylus at the hands of Sulla after the First Mithridatic War. It is here demonstrated that Magnesia near Sipylus received its freedom and a sketch of its role in the war is given. In the case of Magnesia on the Maeander it is shown that the nature of the evidence is such that it can be interpreted as a falsification in the records or as a reward of freedom for saving its resident Roman population and that scholarly caution dictates we should not privilege one interpretation over the other.
keywordsMagnesia, Sulla, freedom, asylum.
